Okay, whenever I plug my LTD B-206SM into an amp, it starts out at the right volume level as its suppose to be and then after 30 seconds it gets extremely quiet and never goes back up. Its also been distorting every note I play on it. Anyone know what I can do to fix it? Thanks.

Check it out! If you do listen, ignore the bass playing on the songs. I recorded them when i was alot worse then i am now.

Does it have a battery?


Edit: Yeh, sounds like a dead battery.

Yeah, it does have a battery. Ugh, how much does it cost to replace a battery? Edit: Will this also fix my bass distorting all the time?

Yes. When a bass's battery dies, it starts distorting more and more and more and then finally making no volume, and also does what you described with starting normal then getting quiet. And basses use 9v batteries; you can buy them at anywhere that would sell AA or AAA batteries and they're fairly common. Get used to it, you'll have to do it at least a few more times.

They go faster if you leave your bass plugged in all the time, but a year is pretty good.
I change mine every few months, just to be safe. My friend changes his monthly religiously, But he drives a Porsche, so he can afford that...
